3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Very pale and very good. Pours light golden brown with med head that fades somewhat fast. Got a very strong bite yet not too bad. Good offering fron Texas. Finish is calm. However gets rather sweet at the end which makes 2 beers plenty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light clean nose with some cracked grain aromas, pale orange color, low head. Toasted malt and a little caramel flavor. Light berry tastes. Bitter-ish end. Smooth and clean palate and a good balance, for sure, but overall nothing special. Decent.

Light orange color with tones of red. Little layer of a head, liveley carbonation. Bubble gum like, berry nose - Weak though. Cardboard cereal taste. Not much going on just a slightly bitter kick at the end.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Solid hopping, giving it citrus and pine bites, but with Saaz? Curious production of flavor from that. Lingering bitterness, not "balanced" but muted enough to be interesting. Substandard palate--strikes me as thin very early. Amber-copper color, some head. I didn't get mine from fly. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ugh. I had to pour this one out. Mostly hops in the aroma and flavour, but for some reason, it also reminds me of the Hidden River B & T. Seems to have a slight spoiled green pea aroma. I repeat, 'ugh.'

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to FLY for passing this beer along to me… and for no reason other than - you’re a really nice guy!
A glowing copper body with a large rocky snow capped head. The aroma is light with hops, loads of caramel malt; actually far more malt than hops. A strange Pale Ale, unique and thirst quenching. Slight wheat suggestions, notes of banana and some light citrus peel. Oily palate with a dry crisp snappish finish…… seems like a cross between a well built Pilsner / German Wheat / and an APA.
I thought it was tasty and my girlfriend liked it very much….. I think she drank more than I did?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is a dark golden amber color with a medium thin light beige head. Thin lacing. Lightly hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied and smooth with a decent hops and malt flavor. The finish is a little citrusy. Compared to their Rye and Sisyphus this beer isn't really remarkable, but it is a decent Pale either way.

Nice easy to drink pale. Nice malt flavor with a lite bit of hops. If you are in Austin, make a side trip over to see Brad and the boys in Blanco. They are really nice guys.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity, vinegar/yeasty aroma, not unlike their rye PA, but lighter. Honey gold beer, massive bone-colored head, moderately hazy. Not nearly as interesting as their rye PA. Lightly hopped, but really a Saaz PA? Fruity, mild sweetness, a little starchy/buttery, some sunflower seed or nuttiness in there. Medium citric finish. Very drinkable, especially cold on a 101° day in TX today, but not very interesting. Probably would go well with chicken, fish.
